Jonesey95 added a comment to T259570: Improve how linter errors in signatures are communicated in Special:Preferences.

These all appear to me to be features of the Linter engine. I see all of these features when I use LintHint on articles, and I agree that they could be improved. It might be a good idea to add the Linter project to this ticket.

Jonesey95 added a comment to T248457: Fully terminate use of Wikidata item descriptions as short article descriptions for English Wikipedia articles.

There is not about local consensus of enwiki, they can do whatever they want, it's about how the developers and the fond implement the integration with wikidata and between all projects.

Nothing will change regarding the Wikidata integration for other projects (besides English Wikipedia).

Once again, the current implementation creates an unused comfused template across hundreds of wikis because of ContentTranslator, and also allows large wikis to be removed from the workflow instead of integrating them, which degrades the quality of the data on Wikidata.

Jonesey95 added a comment to T140606: Check user signature for linter errors.

In my experience (finding and fixing hundreds of thousands of Linter errors on en.WP), this is just how the current Linter works. If there are multiple errors, it does not always highlight the correct or complete string, and it does not always correctly identify the error types. It's a fundamental challenge with parsing invalid syntax: it's invalid, so it is difficult to write an algorithm to interpret its invalidity correctly every time.

One of the notes I added to Help:Images: "If there is a space character between alt and the equals sign, the alt statement will be treated as a caption." This behavior is contrary to how editors are used to working with template parameters. Yes, I know that images are not templates, but it is difficult to manage this inconsistent behavior, and there does not appear to be a good design reason for treating these spaces as syntactically meaningful while (for example) stripping out spaces after the equals sign.

Jonesey95 added a comment to T209493: VE is transforming citation templates into formatted text with "cite class" tags (when copying a reference defined within template-generated reflist).

You're right, "substed" is not quite correct, but somehow, "templatestyles src="Module:Citation/CS1/styles.css" " is getting into the wikicode. I don't imagine that editors are typing that themselves manually, especially editors prone to using VE, so some interaction between the actions of the human editor and VE's programming are probably causing this bug.

It looks like this change has been partially implemented. IABot is inserting "url-status=alive". Unfortunately, "alive" is not valid; please use "live" instead.

Re: Retro's comments: There is already a bot working through a limited set of signatures. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Bots/Requests_for_approval/Ahechtbot_5 and its siblings. The current BRFA process, and the time-consuming nature of finding faulty signatures in talk pages and figuring out a fix for each one, makes it pretty slow to chip away at faulty signatures, but it is possible.

I welcome bot fixes of Linter errors in signatures. They will not fix the root cause of the problem, however, which is that custom signature code is allowed to contain Linter errors. @WOSlinker proposed a reasonable fix above.

The bot should not insert an invalid title. If it is unable to insert a valid title, it should leave the title blank so that the error message makes it obvious to editors that something needs to be fixed.

Thanks for the quick patch, but wouldn't it make more sense to roll this out with the normal Thursday/Friday patch cycle? Now that I think of it, why was this non-urgent change applied out-of-cycle in the first place, without the usual announcement in Technical News?

It is not really even obvious what this new thing does, or where the useful slider GUI went. Whatever choices the developers are making, can you please move these experiments to the bottom of the page, or into a collapsed box, so that busy editors can see the actual links in the actual revision history, which is the title of the page, after all.
